Hi all

I have been working on java for 4 yrs and also worked on similar technologies & frameworks(spring/struts/php).

I have desire to be a Java Architect in future. So i decided to add some certifications to my profile.
My primary interest is Spring framework & very good working experience in it.I want to learn more technologies (Spring batch/WS)

Researching over internet , i figured out that before going into other framework/certifications, i should be certified with Java certifications (SCJP/OCP).
With Java 7,We have one more exam added now. OCA (Oracle Certified Associate, Java SE 7 Programmer) ->OCP.
So i have to start from basic java certifications. Am i correct?

Can someone please help me with my career path?

Yes, you have to start with the OCAJP 7 certification. If you pass this one, you can continue with the OCPJP 7 certification. If you pass both, you'll be a certified Java 7 programmer.

Good luck!
